I've just discovered that Wonderland can be a creepy, creepy place. Unlike the Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland has a much darker side, and artists really love to show it off. Oh little Alice, what happened to you? Disney's version of the tale is absolutely obsolete as I can see... people don't believe it as the cute story of a girl lost in a different land, but they do believe that Wonderland is one hell of a wicked place to be lost at. Poor Alice has lost her way... and thank God for illustrations like these to show us this dark side of the story... but still, there are some cute images in here, just to remember the good old days. Oh, and don't forget to visit each author's page! They'll love it! Cheers. ;)

We love comic books and superheroes and it's hard to explain why, however we could say that it's one of our first contacts with art, even though they are commercial. Now imagine if a famoust artist like Pablo Picasso were alive and decided to paint about superheroes? That is what Mike Esparza decided to play with, he created a superhero series with the Picasso's Cubist style. I get a lot of my inspiration from comic books, movies, music and observing other artwork. When I paint, I tend to bend the rules a little, but try to keep my subject recognizable so the audience can still connect with it. Pablo Picasso is a great influence, I’ve always wondered if he were alive today, what would he paint? This past year I’ve had a lot of fun creating a superhero series with a Picasso style twist to them. I do have some super plans for creating more superhero artwork in the near future. Do not forget to check out Mike's website, there are tons of inspiration. About Pablo Picasso Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor. He is one of the most recognized figures in 20th-century art. He is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) and Guernica (1937), his portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. - Wikipedia

Adrian Van Delzel is a graphic designer and illustrator from Barcelona, Spain. His work is most vector illustrations with an incredible amount of details and elements. Some characters are simply amazing, especially the Monster ones. Most things are based on vectors in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop is a faithful friend, but not the center of it all. I always try to find some sort of equilibrium, which counteract my "artistic imbalance" that is present on everything I do... For more information about Adrian's work please visit his website at http://www.adrianvandelzel.com/, you will not regret it. Videos LITTLE HOOLIN from Adrian Van Delzel on Vimeo.
I've probably said it before, but watercolor is definetely one of the greatest techniques of painting there is! It's truly incredible what a good illustration will do with it... so I thought it would be cool to find some watercolor illustrations of Super heroes and villains. And as usual, I started looking for some cool illustrations at DeviantART, and found a whole bunch of sweet, beautiful illustrations, and they're listed below! The colors give each illustration a particular feeling, a single mood for every and each one, and that's exactly what I found fantastic about it. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I did... and please, don't forget to give some love to each artist by visiting their galleries!! There are much more great art at their galleries.

One thing I love about design is the variety of things one single designer does nowadays. Everyone is multi-task, and also does lots of cool stuff, like this one designer, Grzegorz Domaradzki. His work is pretty amazing. The variety of styles of his work just assures me of how good this guy is... there's no limitation! Everything is inspiration, how some might say. So, for more of his great work, you should all visit his portfolio at Behance. He'll really appreciate it! I hope you all enjoy it. Cheers! ;)

Benjamin Güdel is a very talented illustrator and comic artist based in Zurich. He has his roots in the underground comic world but he says he became an illustrator in order to earn a living. His dynamic and expressive drawings, which are mostly begun by hand and then finished digitally, can be seen in various Swiss publications such as Weltwoche, Soda and DU as well as gracing posters for the Berlin avant-garde theatre, the Schaubühne." http://www.hotelfox.dk/ "Benjamin Güdel is a freelance illustrator and comic artist based in Zurich, Switzerland. His bump and grind style is reminiscent of pulp fiction covers and cult film posters of the 1950s with a distinct contemporary, politically incorrect edge. Güdel's striking drawings are collected in Blood, Sweat and Tears, a rollicking romp through pop art portraits, pin-ups, pirates and more. Featuring commercial illustrations for clients including Berlin's renowned Schaubuhne Theater, Burton and innovative Swiss magazines "Du" and "soDA" as well as personal projects, this book is an entertaining whirlwind ride through Güdel's work." http://www.gestalten.com For more information Benjamin Güdel: http://www.guedel.biz/
